Gee, this sounds an awful lot like a threat from the “mostly peaceful” occupiers, doesn’t it? Seriously, who the hell do these punks think they are?
The last time Occupy Oakland supporters tried to turn a vacant building into a base of operations, police moved in quickly.
Now as members of the movement prepare Saturday to once again take over an undisclosed vacant building and turn it into a social center, they’re warning authorities not to interfere.
“If you try to evict us again, Occupy Oakland will make your lives more miserable than you make ours,” said Occupy supporter Leo Ritz-Barr, reading from a letter that the movement was sending to city leaders, including Mayor Jean Quan and interim police Chief Howard Jordan.
Another eviction could result in a “permanent occupation” of the Port of Oakland, Oakland International Airport or City Hall, Occupy members said Wednesday during a news conference in Frank H. Ogawa Plaza. They also threatened to call on the activist hacker group Anonymous for support.
This is what the officials in Oakland get for accommodating these thugs, so I can’t feel much sympathy for them. But really, they actually think they can just go squat wherever they please? What they need is a wooden shampoo.
